The Internal Revenue Service is a huge government agency that enforces untold volumes of tax laws that Congress has passed. It is the enforcement arm of the Mafioso government charged with threatening people who don’t pay up the extortion money and hurting those who refuse to do so. The IRS will be the goon squad in charge of enforcing the Obamacare tax mandate.
One would think that a massive agency with a huge budget would be very concerned with the tax money people pay in and that is returned to them (or redistributed) as part of the tax process.
One would also think that the IRS would be looking out for fraud when it comes to people working the system. It is a certainty that the agency looks for fraud when people, particularly those with high incomes, submit tax returns with what might be questionable entries. How do they know the entries are questionable? They know because people or computers look for indicators of fraud.
A lot of the tax system is based on Social Security Numbers but not everyone who pays taxes or files a tax return has one of those. A taxpayer identification number is assigned to people who are not citizens so they can file taxes and get returns.
The IRS is supposed to look at the applications for TINs and ensure they are legitimate so that people do not get money to which they are not entitled. But the IRS has a different idea of its function as people in charge of the agency instructed staff members to overlook fraud in TIN applications.
The cited article indicates the IRS disbursed $6.2 BILLION in tax refunds to people with TINs. It is possible that all of those were legitimate but if fraud was overlooked, how do we really know if that money should have been disbursed? How do we know that the government (read taxpayers) is not getting screwed out of money to run the country?
The IRS has announced a series of improvements but why is it that federal agencies always lose billions of dollars or are found to be doing a poor job before some improvement is worked on?
Should they not have extreme attention to detail, at least as much as they expect us to have when we fill out our taxes?
We need a simplified tax system with a flat tax and no deductions where one can use a postcard to verify taxes paid and adjust for any small adjustments that might occur. If everyone paid a flat tax on income there would be no need for a huge IRS (if we needed it at all).
Think how much money we could save by scaling down that monstrosity of an agency…

Barack Obama is a pro-union guy and the unions are pro-Obama (and pro most Democrats for that matter). The unions sent their thugs out to campaign for Obama and to beat up people who opposed him or his agenda. They are peas in a pod.
Looks like some Obama supporters were arrested in the FBI raids that netted 125 members of the Mafia crime families:
Among those arrested Thursday were union officials, two former police officers and a suspect in Italy. High-ranking members of the Gambino and Colombo crime families and the reputed former boss of organized crime in New England also were named in 16 federal indictments unsealed Thursday. [emphasis mine] Yahoo News
The mob has been part of union hierarchy for decades and some of them were weeded out in these raids but there are many more where these came from.
While Obama and his administration are busy bailing out unions left and right they are involved in organized crime.
I wonder how long it will take his Justice Department to release these guys and drop the charges.

The next few weeks will be very interesting with regard to the Democratic Primary race. John Edwards has vowed to stay in and he will continue to pester Hillary. Obama, who must be somewhat stunned to lose after a “10 point lead” was predicted a few days ago, will probably take off the gloves and start striking Hilary. I think he learned from the pros this past week when the Clintonista mafia gang spread nasty stories about Obama and abortion just before the vote leaving little time for rebuttal. No matter what anyone thinks about the Clintons, they are a political machine and they know how to get dirty, very dirty. So what should we expect to come from them next?
Playing on the perceived strength of their action not talk remodeling, they will continue to attack Obama as a man who talks a good game while Hillary has lived that game. If this were their only plan it would fail but I expect we will be hit with a softer side of Hillary where she feigns a few tears every once in awhile and where Bill cries for his beastly wife like he did last evening. Bill will go around biting his lip (as opposed to biting the lips of his rape victims) and will tell us how hard Hillary works and how proud he is of her. He will also tell us lies about her record.
There will also be a healthy dose of the word comeback. The Clintons will try to get comeback into everything they can because it will wax nostalgic for the retread hippies who supported him as president. It will also bring back memories of the drug induced euphoria the Clinton supporters felt during his time in office. The Clintonista gang will use comeback quite a bit to make Hilary look like a fighter while she musters up a few tears to seem human. Make no mistake, her tears were as phony as a three dollar bill and she will use them if she thinks they provide an advantage.
I expect that Obama and Clinton will be in through Super Tuesday. I doubt Edwards will last that long but as long as he is in he will harass Clinton and Clinton, the “comeback kid” will harass Obama while turning on her tears of a clown. I was hoping she would lose yesterday and meltdown so that she could drop out and we could finally be rid of the vermin known as Clinton.
Hillary Clinton is Satan.

About two weeks after the Sopranos aired its last episode, Bill and Hillary Clinton made a commercial that was a spoof of that final scene of the series. It is interesting that the Clintons would select a scene from a show about a mafia family because it would appear as if the Clintons live mobster’s lives.
George Bush said if you are not with us you are against us and the left mocked that cowboy attitude but the reality is, with the Clintons you are either with them or against them. Very few people cross the Clintons and continue to have success. Bill and Hillary and their people make it absolutely clear that lack of loyalty will be looked upon with disfavor, especially if they get back into the White House. Hillary in particular, is an authoritarian who demands absolute loyalty. If she finds that a person is disloyal she will chew that person up and spit him out and not think twice. Think about how many stories discuss people who would not speak for fear of reprisal. The Clintons are mobsters.
This is also true when it comes to the media, a venue the Clintons practically own. Bill has made friends with a lot of people and every moonbat in the world wants to be an FOB (friend of Bill). They bend over backwards to appease the Clintons and to ensure that they get good press. Often, items are ignored so as not to bring discredit or unfavorable press on the Hildebeast. On those occasions where the media outlet is not cooperating or loses its way, the Clintons are there ready to strong arm them into submission.
Take the latest information that the Clintons squashed a story in GQ that was unfavorable to Hillary. The magazine was told to drop the story or there would be no access to Bill. Bang, zoom, there is no story. Some gutless, spineless, coward at GQ decided that it was better to appease the Clintons than to publish the story. It is not a matter of truthfulness because the story had to be true. If it were not, the Clintons would not have wasted time on it. They can lie away the marginal stories or explain away the lies with ease. The problems arise when they are forced to confront the truth. If the truth was Hillary’s ass she could not find it with her hands in her back pockets.
There are many people who are afraid of the Clintons, especially the Hiledbeast because she is vicious and she will rip people apart. I do not particularly care about Hillary. I personally do not know why people are afraid of her or cower from her. She might break bad once but after she was put in her place further outbursts would come at the risk of having her neck snapped off her body. I don’t play those games which might explain why I am a Conservative, not some cowering liberal who is afraid of a beastly woman.
Those who claim that President Bush manipulates the media are the same kind who would give Hillary a pass on her abuse of the media. Just keep this in mind when you are deciding who you should vote for. We don’t need a president who suffers from penis envy or who browbeats people to get what she wants. Leadership is the ability to influence people to give their willing participation in achieving a goal. If you have to scare people to get things done you are not a leader.
